lEXUS RX300 REVIEW AFTER 10 YEARS
By nahash on
2002 Lexus RX 300 AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Hi, I have this car for 10 years now with 220k
In general it was a great car very comfi to drive.
It had few small problems but 2 problems that I want to share with all potential owners. One is with the anti lock brake sensors. During the 10 years had to change 2 anti lock sensors. 1000$ cost for each.Lexus built the antilock sensor into the drive shafts so there are 4 sensors in this car as it is a 4 wheel drive ( 4 shafts). In order to change the sensor the shaft must be replaced with a cost close to 1000$. Other issue is the timing belt. This model has a timing belt that must be changed around the 180k with a cost to the customer of close to 1000$. so be aware this is what you will face
Driving position, visibility, comfort
Change to timing chain, improve the Anti Lock sensors so they will not fail so often and that it will be easy to change without changing the whole shaft !!
